Margaret Wells knows a good thing when she sees it.
Sharp-witted at 97 years old, Margaret reflects back to more than 70 years ago when she married her husband within nine months of meeting each other.
“It doesn’t seem that long ago, really,” she says with a smile.
A widow for the past 13 years, Margaret likes to recall her marriage that spanned 60 years.
“I guess my work here on earth isn’t finished,” Margaret says kindly about life without her beloved husband, Earl. “But I’m not sure what I have left to do.”
Guided by her strong faith, Margaret is a valued member of the Helen Henderson Retirement Lodge family where she is President of Residents’ Council and Volunteer of the Year in 2008.
A resident of the retirement lodge for 14 years, Margaret spends her days knitting, reading and having fun with friends.
“We love our high tea,” she says with a chuckle.
Margaret and her family will be showcasing the lodge at its annual open house on Sunday, May 3.
